The Durham District School Board and William Dunbar Pubic School follow the Guidelines and Procedures for the Accommodation of Religious Requirements Practices and Observances. This
document has been produced in compliance with requirements of Ontario's Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy within the contexts of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the
Ontario Human Rights Code. This document assists us in creating and maintaining equitable and inclusive environments within our schools and facilities, and guides the process of providing religious accommodations as the need arises. The document is available for viewing at http://ddsb.durham.edu.on.ca/DDSBmain.htm (highlight programs on the left panel, then Equity and Inclusive Education, then Guidelines) or you may ask to review a copy at your child's
If you anticipate that you or your family might require religious accommodation at any point during the school year we ask that you inform the administration at your child's school as early as possible,
preferably at the start of the school year. Areas that you might consider include, but are not limited to, the following:
· Observation of major religious holy days and celebrations
· Accommodation in, or exemption from, specific areas of the curriculum or other school activities
· Religious attire
· Modesty requirements in physical education
· School opening and closing exercises
· Dietary requirements
You are also welcome to speak to your school administration about unanticipated religious accommodation needs as they arise.
For specific accessibility inquiries related to your DDSB community school, please contact the school's principal. You may also find information by visiting the Durham District School Board's website www.durham.edu.on.ca and clicking on "DDSB and Accessible Customer Service."
